“Impossible” Bread

23 Apr

I call this bread, “Impossible” because it has no grains, and really doesn’t seem like it should be bread-like, but it is! Even makes good sandwiches. This recipe is also good for people eating Low Carb or Paleo/Primal diets. Be careful — Flax meal has a LOT of fiber in it, so don’t eat too much of this bread!


  • 2/3 c ground flax seeds/meal
  • 1/3 c. almond flour/meal
  • 1.5 tsp. baking powder
  • 1/2 tsp. salt
  • 1 Tbsp oil (I usually use olive oil)
  • 2 eggs
  • 1/4 c. water (if your measuring isn’t accurate, err on the side of “less”)
  • 1 Tbsp molasses

Directions for a Small Round Loaf (serves 4)

  1. Preheat oven to 400F.
  2. Mix dry ingredients. In a separate bowl, mix remaining wet ingredients, then combine the two mixtures. Mix thoroughly.
  3. Grease an 8″ cake pan and mound batter into the middle. Depending on how much water you used, the batter may or may not spread to the edges of the pan during baking.
  4. Bake about 20 minutes, or until a knife inserted in the center comes out clean.
  5. Let cool in pan for a few minutes, then remove from pan and cool on a wire rack.
  6. Cut into wedges to serve.

For a Large Loaf-shaped Loaf (serves 12), triple the recipe above, reduce heat to 375F, and bake in a well-greased 9″ loaf pan for about 55 minutes.
